Looks like nothing much been happening lately, as we’re getting ever closer to the 50th Merdeka Celebration next week.
I read Wheel Power today, a column by fellow wheeler Anthony Thanasayan on what Merdeka means from the disabled community's point of view and Perwira K9’s advisor was one of the two featured atleast in half of the article.
Mr Chong Tuck Meng, fondly known as the ‘Boss’ amongst some of us has been a quad for 25 years now. He has vast experience under his belt fighting equal rights for persons with disability and played a major role in the setting up of Perwira K9 and involved in various of programs for the benefits of the needies in general.
He touched on the Disability act bill that has yet to be implemented in Parliament and strongly feels that its high time a representative from the disabled community make our presence felt in the Dewan.
Hold on. Don’t we actually have one already? That Tiger of Malaya guy? Eh, sounds like a heat rub tiger balm. That Haw Par brand from Singapore, or the emblem of Filem Negara Malaysia.
Ok, seriously. Karpal Singh is an elected representative and he’s on a freakin’ wheelchair. But no. I think he’s too occupied with political matter to bother about such bills. Besides, we need someone from the NGO, a non-partisan with respectable knowledge on the current issues.
We urgently need one. Maybe we could get one of the senators to crippled their limbs and, voila, we have an instant candidate. Or is that an incumbent?
Oh hell, this entry is getting nowhere. It was originally supposed to be part of the run-in to Merdeka but typically I screwed it up somewhere and went astray.
I wish I could be more focused in dealing with certain subject and finish up the whole article on it. I am surrounded with too much distractions to write even half a paragraph.
I just don’t have what it takes to be or come even close to Rocky, Nuraina or Peter Tan as far as writing goes, but I cant be that dumb right? Wrong.
Ok, lets get back on track. Yes. Merdeka is like, what, 7 days away? And its going to be a long weekend as 31st falls on Friday.
I bet everyone has applied to take an extra day leave on that Thursday. So imagine, as from this Saturday til the next Sunday, they only have to waste three days of their life working. I think I’m gonna ask my girl to do the same and we can spend more time together.
Back to the Rocky, and possibly Pn Nuraina. They’ll be attending the much talk-about do which will take place tomorrow in Damansara Heights as part of Merdeka celebration. Themed The Bangsa Anak Malaysia Merdeka Get Together, I believe most of the heavyweight bloggers will be around. I would love to make myself present but I fear I may be out of place, not because I’m on wheelchair, hell no. it’s a brand new chair, mind you. Honestly, I’m not very sure about this Bangsa Malaysia Thing. I mean, I doubt it'll be a non-political affair. But it does NOT mean, in any ways I am against it. No.
Really guys, have fun. And uncle Zorro, do tapau some Mihun… NOT!!
Ok this piece of poop is getting crappier and out of hands. I should stop. Infact I should have stopped much earlier.
Maybe I should write something on Anthony and the ‘Boss’ as they are the wheelchair heavyweights championing the equal rights of the disabled but since weekend is here, I might screw it up again and start doing football commentaries.
I’m outta here.
